Recent work with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder has led to startling discoveries in OCD treatment and treatments for substance addiction. The two disorders have in the past been linked. This intersecting of OCD and addiction offers us a chance to take a fresh look at both, and to discover many more approaches to treatment by studying their common ground.
Since OCD and substance addiction treatments have evolved separately in theory and practice, the overlap of the two approaches offers us a training ground. We now have a chance to learn new strategies of treatment. There is more opportunity for growth. That means, we offer better methods of treating those in need.
Our communication has always been a key in treating OCD and substance addiction. Weekly counseling sessions, psychotherapy and even an occasional phone call in a midnight emergency.
The Obsessive Compulsive Mind:
This may sound like an OCD term, the words ‘Obsessive’ and ‘Compulsive’, but it is really a reference to the tendency of addicts to be dragged down by their own thoughts. Be sure any approach to treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Addiction is created using the very important principles that lie on the cutting edge of the science of both disorders, not just one.
We treat all who come to us for help compassionately. Perhaps other treatments for OCD or Addiction attempt to do the same. We take compassion one step further. We teach people who come to us to treat themselves with compassion and non-judgement.
It is not just our intent to be compassionate that puts us high on the list for compassionate and personable care.
Compassion and non-judgment are integrated into our approach so deeply that we don’t have to keep reminding ourselves that we are there for one reason – you.
It’s simple: if we are to treat OCD and addiction patients objectively, we must let them know that they are not alone, and they have no reason to be ashamed. Mindfulness offers us a chance to prove this to them. Yes, we do teach that all people should monitor their own behavior, but without judgement or criticism. Self-monitoring should be done with on open and objective mind that seeks out facts, not self-condemnation. This objective knowledge of self can then be used to promote better health by true, non-judgmental understanding of self.
Good news, now we are coming to you. We work hard each day to integrate the power of Mindfulness into addiction recovery programs whenever we see an opening. Be sure the program you choose offers this cutting edge treatment for both OCD and addiction.
